The 24-year-old forward has been a regular source of goals in the Scottish Football League over recent years and will now get the chance to push for a dream move to England.

A number of SPL sides were believed to be keen on taking a look at Doris, who recently caught the eye during a cup meeting with Celtic, but Birmingham have edged to the front of the queue.

Doris is to spend a week training with the Championship club and Arbroath boss Paul Sheerin is convinced his main source of goals can be a success at St Andrew's.

He said in the Daily Record: "Birmingham watched him a few times and saw him against Celtic. Now they want a closer look.

"He's been outstanding for the past few years and I'm surprised more Scottish clubs haven't had a nibble at him.

"He's good enough to step up and I know he won't let himself down when he goes to Birmingham."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
